Ship's Log

Week of May 6, 2019

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

It was nice to see many of you at the Gala. The Gala was lots of fun and great success!


Tomorrow we will have a prayer service in the gym at 9:00. 6-8 can still get their buddies and sit with them in the gym. We will also need to do the Gala Raffle items for students AND a quick 'Rock the Test' assembly- I have stickers and more to hand out to students as they leave the gym and head off to take their tests

AND there will be the Americanism poster award winners too.... way to much for our 'quick' morning but we will get through it as quickly as possible

BE AMAZING & Don't FORGET!

Cell Phones should not be used for personal use during class/work time. Please limit use to your prep/breaks. We understand there are times you need to be accessible- in those cases just let me know please.


UPDATE summer reading lists- please!!


SPRING PHOTOS- collect the photo packages and money- in the envelope and send to the office Monday morning- then save the next batch until Friday. Please keep track of who returns them so you can collect the photos from ALL of your students. Thank you.


  • Don't forget to SIGN IN at the office each morning.... we need to know who is in the building
  • Remember to wear your ID badge Every day (we have clips for them in the office)
  • UPDATE Option C by Monday each week


LESSON PLANS- I know we are coming to the end of the year, but classroom teachers are still expected to have their detailed lesson plans for the week prepared for Mondays.


Just a reminder that you are responsible for the contents of the faculty/staff handbook- These are the guidelines and expectations for staff members

End of Year

The last day of school will be June 13th.
This is always an early release day and we will have our awards assembly in the gym that morning- I'll confirm the time... this is usually followed by our Staff end of year party/luncheon- Location TBD


We will have June 14th off (enjoy) but ALL staff should plan to work on June 17th and 18th to complete additional work on our self study and supporting materials.


We are hoping to finalize most of the work by June 18th but there may be some things that will require additional work before the beginning of the next school year.

Some Great ideas to freshen our bulletin boards for the end of the school year!

A MUST read for classroom teachers!

I love visiting your classrooms and seeing all the amazing things you're doing for kids!

Don't forget to invite me, remind me or share photos of what is happening when I'm not there! Let's keep sharing our story and great happenings!

Good News Call of the Day

Don't forget to make your PAWSitive Referrals! We're almost half way through the year so we need to TRIPLE or efforts... try to suggest a couple each week!

MAP Testing

We need to make sure our students are vested in doing well on the upcoming MAP testing.

We will have a brief assembly after the brief prayer service on May 6th= to kick off Rocking the test.

I want all teachers to give students their RIT scores from the winter in each area.

These can be on laminated cards that can be used over and over. They should have their score and then a 'goal' score for spring.

You can also just write these scores on their desk in expo! We want them to have a score to BEAT and a goal! This will help motivate some students - especially since they will see their score as soon as they finish the test to see if they beat their score or not!

Feel free to get creative....
